Doesn't this sound great and so easy to make..... Get some Mediterranean dates, pit them and then stuff them with feta (or you could do any goat cheese),  then wrap them up in prosciutto. 

**DETAILS: Let's use 10 pitted dates. So, you'll need 1/3 cup skim ricotta cheese, 3 Tbsp goat cheese, 10 walnut halves, 3 oz prosciutto, 10 sage leaves cut in half and toothpicks. 

**DIRECTIONS:  You will mix the ricotta cheese and goat cheese until combined then place the mixture in a ziplock or piping bag with a small slit in the corner. ~Pipe mixture into the center of the date. then place the walnut half into the center trying not to push the filling out. (some will come out , it's ok) ~Lay out some parchment paper and get your prosciutto, separate it so you are not using the entire slice at one time. ~ Place one date and a 1/2 leaf of sage down, starting from the corner work your way  from one end of the prosciutto to the next.. (roll like a burrito). ! Next just pop them into the heated oil (medium heat) for 2-3 minutes.  Look for the prosciutto to be crispy. Serve warm and enjoy the compliments.
